The final started with noted quizmaster Pickbrain taking charge. He maintained a brisk tempo as teams hedged some questions right and some wrong. Midway through the quiz, most teams seem to be where they started with no score on the board. While that look humorous it certainly made the quiz tense.

It was in the final frontier of the quiz that the team from IISER represented by Anubhab and Aditya played exceedingly well to clinch the title. Amar and Siddharth from NLU finished a very worthy runner-up.

The quiz witnessed teams travelling all the way from Gwalior and Jabalpur and duly acknowledged and appreciated by the quiz master. Mr. Vivek Pathak of BHEL, prolific corporate quizzer from the region was also present at the quiz.

The chief guest Dr P.K Mishra former director CRIM, Barkatullah University gave away the prizes to the teams. The winning team now qualifies to the Mumbai zonal round where they would take on other teams from Western India to battle for a place in the national final.
